X-Chat Aqua Editor's Review

'X-Chat Aqua' is a Mac OS X port of the X-Chat IRC client.

X-Chat is popular on Linux operating systems, because it comes as part of the distribution package. This program brings the X-Chat spirit on the Macintosh.

The client has a list of popular IRC networks and servers. The list also has a search engine that allows you to find a network or server quickly.

The network/server list can be edited. If you use an IRC server that isn't usually included in the IRC clients, then you can add it yourself. The server list provides you some checkboxes that lets you select your favorite servers, and the ones that it should automatically connect at startup.

The basic configuration is easy. You need to provide some information such as nickname, alternatives to the nickname if it's taken, real name, etc. If the configuration is OK, then you can connect to the server immediately.

The program's menu provides functions that help you interact with specific things that are provided by the IRC protocol. Some of this functionality is available by using text commands.

The client can send links to your default browser, which can be customized. It also provides customizable links that can be used inside the client, such as query links or join links.

Pluses: It's very customizable. It provides a good interface that helps new IRC protocol users. It has the DCC support implemented, which gives you access to direct chat and file transfer.

Drawbacks / flaws:

In conclusion: This is a very good IRC client for the Mac OS X platform. As an alternative, I found a Mozilla Firefox extension, called Chatzilla.

version reviewed: 0.16.0

X-Chat Aqua Publisher's Description

X-Chat Aqua is a Mac OS X IRC client. If you are familiar with XChat for UNIX/GTK+/X Windows, then you will be at home with X-Chat Aqua. X-Chat Aqua uses the IRC engine from XChat and has been designed to look and feel like XChat. As time goes by, I expect that I will add features that are not necessarily part of XChat.
